Despite the absence of star RB Chris Nwoke, the Colorado St. Rams have played some impressive football in their season-finale, as they lead the Wyoming Cowboys,19-14, heading into the final quarter.
After struggling to move the ball in the opening half, the Rams offense was clicking on all cylinders in the third quarter. Senior RB Raymond Carter dominated the line of scrimmage, scoring the TD to put the Rams ahead. Carter has now rushed for 149 yards on 25 carries. Garrett Grayson has shown all of his abilities from the QB position, completing 11/18 for 119 yards and also rushing for 91 yards.
While the offense has generated some rhythm, the real story of the game has been the play of the Colorado St. defense. The Rams have forced two key turnovers and limited the Wyoming offense from getting anything going in the third quarter. In fact, the Cowboy offense only ran nine plays in the entire quarter.
